1 introduction to bfhi and 10 steps of breastfeeding

  3. 3. What is BFHI • Worldwide programme of the World Health Organization and UNICEF, launched in 1991 following the Innocenti Declaration of 1990 • Global effort for improving the role of maternity services to enable mothers to breastfeed babies for the best start in life
  4. 4. Goals of the Baby-friendly Hospital Initiative • To transform maternity facilities through implementation of the “Ten steps” • To end the practice of distribution of free and low cost supplies of breast-milk substitutes to maternity wards and hospitals
  5. 5. BFHI • Global program • Sponsors World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) • HPB/MOH • To encourage, recognize maternity hospitals that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding • Assists hospitals in giving mothers the information, confidence, and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies • Gives special recognition/accreditation to hospitals that have done so
  7. 7. WHO/AAP RECOMMENDATION • Exclusive breastfeeding for the 1st 6 months • Continue BF after 6 months together with complementary food for up to 2 years or beyond • Begin skin to skin within 5 minutes of birth and BF within an hour of birth • “On demand", day and night • Avoid bottles or pacifiers
  8. 8. 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding
  9. 9. STEP 1 • Have a written policy that is routinely communicated to ALL health care staff
  10. 10. STEP 1:Why Breastfeeding Policy • Requires a course of action and provides guidance • Helps establish consistent care for mothers and babies • Provides a standard that can be evaluate
  11. 11. How Should It Be Presented? It should be: • Written in 4 languages (English, Chinese, Malay & Indian) • Posted or displayed where mothers and babies are cared for • Available to all staff caring for mothers and babies
  12. 12. STEP 2 • Train ALL health care staff in skills necessary to implement this policy
  13. 13. STEP 2:Who are Involved? • Nurse (20 hours) • Doctor (8 hours) • Allied health staff • Support staff - Clerk ,HCA, Cleaner (15-20 min) • ANYONE in contact with mothers IN ANYWAY OR OTHER STEP 2
  14. 14. STEP 2 Areas of knowledge • Advantages of breastfeeding • Risks of artificial feeding • Mechanisms of lactation and suckling • How to help mothers initiate and sustain breastfeeding • Assess a breastfeed • Managing breastfeeding difficulties • Hospital breastfeeding policies and practices
  15. 15. STEP 3• Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding
  16. 16. Anternatal Breastfeeding Education • Antenatal Class • Brochure / BF booklet/SSC • Screening of BF Video • To Document in patient’s notes once education have been given STEP 3
  17. 17. Content for Antenatal Education • Benefits of breastfeeding • Early initiation • Importance of rooming-in • Importance of feeding on demand • Importance of exclusive breastfeeding • Monitoring if baby is getting enough • Risks of artificial feeding, use of bottles & pacifiers (soothers, teats, nipples, etc.) STEP 3
  18. 18. STEP 4• Help mother initiate skin to skin contact for 1 hr within 5 min after delivery.
  19. 19. Dept Involved • Delivery Suite – All vaginal delivery – well baby & mother • Operating Theatre – EL LSCS • Special Care Nursery/NICU – When mother is well & baby is stable Posters and brochures will be displayed in these areas STEP 4
  20. 20. Why Skin to Skin & Early Initiation? • Increases duration of breastfeeding • Allows skin-to-skin contact for warmth and colonization of baby with maternal organisms • Provides colostrum as the baby’s 1st immunization • Takes advantage of the 1st hour of alertness • Babies learn to suckle more effectively • Improved developmental outcomes STEP 4
  21. 21. Skin to Skin & Early initiation at Delivery- How ? • Keep mother and baby together after delivery • Place baby on mother’s chest at least an hour • Initiate breastfeeding when baby shows readiness to suckle • Delay non-urgent medical routines for at least one hour STEP 4
  22. 22. STEP 5 • Show mothers how to breastfeed, and how to maintain lactation even if they should be separated from their infants Nurses Lactation Consultant
  23. 23. Basic Information &Technique • Breast care & massage • Latching technique – Modified cradle hold position – Football hold position – Lying position • Monitoring baby’s output • EBM techniques – Hand /pump STEP 5
  24. 24. Start expressing if unable to latch EBM techniques – Hand /pump Feed EBM with cup or spoon
  25. 25. STEP 6• Give newborn infants NO food or drink other than breastmilk ,unless medically indicated
  26. 26. THE PERFECT MATCH Adapted from: Pipes PL. Nutrition in Infancy and Childhood, Fourth Edition. St. Louis, Times Mirror/Mosby College Publishing, 1989. STEP 6 Quantity of colostrum per feed & the newborn stomach capacity
  27. 27. Colostrum is enough • Newborn and infant stomach capacities are perfectly matched to the amount of colostrum (about 200 ml/24 hours at day two) and mature milk (about 800-900 ml/24 hours at 1 year)
  28. 28. Why No Routine Supplement? Why No Bottle/teats? (avoid nipple confusion) Hungry crying baby Anxious mother Easy flow from bottle Less Breastmilk produced & Improper suckling pattern at breast Baby full – lazy about sucking
  29. 29. Why avoid supplementation? • Decreases eagerness to breastfeed, leading to reduced milk supply • Reduced mother’s confidence in breastfeeding leading to allergic sensitization of the baby • Increase chance of infection • If baby fed by bottle it can result in improper sucking pattern when breastfeeding • Involves unnecessary expense
  30. 30. RISK OF ARTIFICIAL FEEDING Baby • More likely to fall sick. • Increase risk of obesity • More diarrhoea and respiratory infections • More allergy and milk intolerance • Increased risk of chronic diseases • Decrease baby desire to breastfeed • Risk of necrotizing enterocolistis (NEC) in preterm Mother • Pregnant sooner • Increased risk of ovarian and breast cancer • Interferes with bonding • Decrease milk production
  31. 31. Acceptable Medical Reasons for use of Breast milk substitutes STEP 6
  32. 32. Medically Indicated for Supplementation- Infant Condition Infant who should not received breast milk or other milk except specialized formula : •Galactosemia •Maple syrup urine disease •Phenylketonuria (PKU) Infant for who, breast milk remains the best option but may need other food in addition to breast milk for limited period : •Very preterm infants (<32 weeks gestational age) •Very low birth weight infants (< 1500g) •Newborn infants at risk of hypoglycaemia
  33. 33. Medically Indicated for Supplementation MATERNAL CONDITION • Acceptable Feasible Affordable Sustainable and Safe Mother who may need to avoid breastfeeding permanently •HIV infection – if replacement feeding is AFASS AFASS=Acceptable feasible affordable, sustainable , safe Mother who may need to avoid breastfeeding temporarily •Severe illness - that prevents mother from caring for her infants •Herpes simplex virus Type 1 - if lesions on breasts •Maternal medication - Sedating psychotherapeutic drug - Radioactive iodine-131 -Cytotoxic chemotherapy •Substance abuse
  34. 34. Mother Who can Continue Breastfeeding • Breast Abscess • Hepatitis B- infants should get vaccine • Hepatitis C • Mastitis ( breast infection ) • TB-if treated and result –ve(FIND OUT )
  35. 35. STEP 7 1. Practise Rooming–In - allow mother & infants to remain together 24 hours a day.
  36. 36. Rooming-in Why? • Helps establish and maintain breastfeeding • Facilitates the bonding process • Enable demand feeding • Mother learns feeding cues • Mother learns to handle and comfort baby • Baby learns to recognize mother • Baby sleeps better • Baby exposed to less infections STEP 7
  37. 37. STEP 8• Encourage breastfeeding on demand. Frequently day and night, no restrictions on the length or frequency of feeds
  38. 38. Why demand feeding • Ensure a good milk supply • Results in less engorgment • Reduced crying and temptation to supplement • Ensure a contented baby
  39. 39. On demand, unrestricted breastfeeding Why? • Earlier passage of meconium • Lower maximal weight loss • Breast-milk flow established sooner • Larger volume of milk intake on day 3 • Less incidence of jaundice From: Yamauchi Y, Yamanouchi I. Breast-feeding frequency during the first 24 hours after birth in full-term neonates. Pediatrics, 1990, 86(2):171-175. STEP 8
  40. 40. STEP 9 • Give NO artificial teats or pacifiers (also called dummies or soothers) to breastfeeding infants.
  41. 41. Alternatives to Artificial Teats • Cup • Spoon • Finger feeding • Tube feeding at breast STEP 9
  42. 42. STEP 10• Foster the establishment of Breastfeeding Support Groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic.
  43. 43. Support Can Includes: • Early postnatal or clinic check up • Home visits • Telephone calls • Community services • Outpatient breastfeeding clinics • Peer counseling programmes • Mother support groups • Family support system

  57. 57. Communication scenario-Total 15 minutes • 2 minutes to read the question and organise thought • 9 minutes for communicating with patient • 1st alarm at 7 minutes when 2 minutes are left • 4 minutes for the feedback
  58. 58. BF and Formula
  59. 59. Communication Scenario-1• You are MO on call. • You are talking to G4P3, 30 years old single parent Lisa, who had divorced 7 months ago, who has 2 previous well baby girls age 4 and 2 years old. She had mixed fed both babies only for 4 weeks and full formula feeding since 2 months of age. Mother delivered at 40 weeks, baby boy by NVD yesterday. Lactation C, OG and NN doctor have both talked with her about exclusively breastfeeding her baby boy. • Although she knows it’s probably best for the baby, she is not sure if she wants to give full breastfeeding since she will be going to work after the baby is born. Being single mother, and it will be pretty tough to make ends meet with a new baby unless she works. • A friend told her, it was possible to pump her milk but that sounds like it could be pretty hard and would take too much time. • As such she does not feel formula feeds are harmful, since she was not also breastfed as baby, was told by her mum and as such she is doing fine.
  60. 60. Your role is to: 1. Ask open-ended questions to find out her thoughts and feelings about breastfeeding. 2. Use probes to better understand what she means. 3. Affirm her feelings. 4. Your role is to communicate benefits of breastfeeding and harmful effects of formula feeding.
